Grant Bronsdon | Lookout Landing: Mariners prospect Logan Gilbert will be called up and make his major league debut Thursday. Gilbert is ranked 28th by MLB Pipeline and is Seattle’s second-best pitching prospect behind Emerson Hancock.
Eric Stephen | True Blue LA: Dodgers corner infielder Edwin Ríos has a torn labrum and will require season-ending surgery. Ríos had a chance to cement himself on LA’s bench this season, but he never quite got going. When he was placed on the injured list, he was in the middle of an 0-for-32 slump.
